Merry Christmas to all!
I will be building a little resistor box for this and my Millenia MG3 amp. I have been playing around with Robrob's resistor calculator and had a quick question. Using 7/1 ohm resistors instead of 6/2 seem to have a lower headphone output impedance and also a effective speaker load closer to 8. apart from 18db of atenuation compared to 12.5 would this not be better? I dont understand half of what im saying so please feel free to correct me or give me any insight!
I have read that some people have notticed lower dynamics with these boxes, has anyone found a sweetspot? I guess this is the 6/2 combo...?
It just depends on how much attenuation you need. If the noise floor hiss is very noticeable or you have very little useable volume knob then 12dB or may be needed. But too much attenuation may have a negative effect on sound quality (still not sure about this though).
